Albondigas Soup

I grew up on this dish, it was one of my favorites.  Albondigas soup is a Mexican food dish.  It is a meatball soup with ground beef and chorizo sausage combination in a vegetable soup.  I went searching on the net for a version of it and came across it in Recipe Zaar. My mom makes it very similar to this one.  I love anything with Zuchinni in it. 🙂





  1. 1

    Make the meatballs first: Combine everything and mix thoroughly.

  2. 2

    Form meatballs and roll between your palms (Otherwise, meatballs will fall apart in the soup).

  3. 3

    You should make around 20 to 24 meatballs, set aside.

  4. 4

    Combine chicken broth, onion, celery, tomatoes and their liquid, cumin, oregano and cilantro leaves in a large pot.

  5. 5

    Bring to broil, and reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

  6. 6

    Drop meatballs in the soup (Make sure the soup is slightly boiling, the meatballs need to be cooked quickly).

  7. 7

    Return to simmer and cook another 10 minutes.

  8. 8

    Add zucchini and cook 10 minutes.

  9. 9

    Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

  10. 10

    You could top the soup with cooked rice, or just by itself.
